How to replace keyboard


This is a fairly simple process. First unplug the ac adapter and remove the battery. The looking at the keyboard, right above it is a Bezel that hides the screws. Take a small flat tip screw driver and gently pry up on the right side, then lift the Bezel out. Once out, you will see three small Philips Head screws that was under the Bezel holding the keyboard. Using a screwdriver remove the three screws.
Make sure that you have a screw driver hat fits them properly, because sometimes they are in very tight, and you can strip the screw slot easily. Once you remove them, gently lift up the keyboard, starting from the front where the screws were. Then grabbing the small wire handle, unplug it from the motherboard. Once removed, place the new keyboard in by plugging the cable into the motherboard. Make sure you press down slightly so that it is seated well in the socket. Them slide the lower end in, and then lay it down and screw it back in place. The insert the Bezel back in starting by sliding it is the left side and pushing down until it re-seats itself. Gently press down along the Bezel to make certain that it has completely seated. The install your battery and plug in your ac adapter, and your finished.
There is a YouTube video showing the removal as he is replacing memory on a D620 (which is exactly the same procedure). Here is the link to the video.

Good Luck.

Acer aspire laptop screen problem.looks like ink burst behind screen


Suggest you replace the LCD screen, pearlboslem. It is damaged.

If you post the Acer Aspire model number, I can find replacement LCD screens for your perusal, and should be able to find a Service Manual. (Free)
I will also guide you step by step the best I can.

This is on the Bottom of the laptop in a white Service Tag.

If you have never replaced an LCD screen in a laptop, the task may look daunting.
I assure you it isn't.

Generally the plastic strip that is above the Keyboard, and below the LCD screen, is removed.
Usually the Power On button, and LED indicator lights are in this plastic strip.
Different manufacturers have different names for this strip of plastic.
LED Cover, Power Button Cover, etc.

With a lot of Acer laptops the LCD screen can simply be accessed by removing the Display Bezel, and the plastic strip does not have to be removed.
(Some laptops do not have a plastic strip)

In the front of the LCD screen, and surrounding the LCD screen, is a thin plastic frame.
This is the Display Bezel.

Most display bezel's have rubber screw covers, going around the front of the bezel.
These are gently picked off with a computer pick, or suitable tool.
They have a type of rubber cement on them, and if careful, they can be reused.
(Stuck back into place)

The screws are just Philips head screws. Once removed the Bezel is slightly flexed, and popped off.

{The outside edges of the Bezel have tabs. Plastic protrusions formed out of the Bezel itself.
These tabs mate up with mating tabs in the Display Cover. The top cover of the laptop.

The tips of the fingers are put on an inside/middle edge of the Bezel, and used to gently ease this inside edge up a little. (Care is used so that fingernails do not touch/scratch the LCD screen)

With the inside/middle edge brought up enough to insert a second finger, the second finger slides down, and eases up on the inside edge again.

The tabs will start popping loose. The procedure is to keep moving along the inside edge with your finger tips, and keep popping the tabs loose. Once you are 1/2 way around, or so, the Bezel will pop free.

Some bezels do not have screws. The Bezel is flexed as above, so it is distorted, and the tabs pop free }

Once the Bezel is removed you are looking at the LCD screen, and how it is fastened to the Display Cover.

The LCD screen is an assembly. It is composed of layers. The layers are held in place by a screen frame. A thin metal frame that resembles a picture frame.

Usually on the left, and right side of the screen frame are metal brackets.
These are attached to the screen frame with two to four screws.
The screws are removed, and the LCD screen assembly is almost ready for removal.
There are cables (Wires) that have to be removed from the LCD screen, the Inverter at the bottom of the LCD screen, and maybe wireless antenna wires.

This gives you an idea on replacing an Acer LCD screen. Different models are shown.
Along with a pictorial guide, I may be able to find a Service Manual also,

At the end of every article for each laptop model, you will see in red -

Click on this for the full article on that model of laptop.

You can click on each photo shown to enlarge it.

Just to show you how relatively easy it is to replace an LCD screen, in an Acer laptop.

Post the Model Number, and I'll give you more exacting information.

Am using toshiba satellite L505-10w my keyboard is not working so how can i get solution


So your Toshiba laptop keyboard isn't working like it should? Whether your keyboard problem resulted from liquid spill, a hard bump, or you simply wore it out, you don't have to worry about investing in a new laptop, you can fix your keyboard problems with a simple swap. The good news is that fixing a Toshiba keyboard does not take much technical skill. In fact, Toshiba keyboards are among the easiest laptops to repair.

1.Remove the bezel just above the keyboard. You will notice a tin strip of plastic located just above the keyboard. This strip is called the keyboard bezel and you remove it by gently prying the edge up with your small standard screwdriver. Work your way across the bezel lifting it as you go. The bezel is a snap in unit so be sure to be gentle, as you work your way across.
2.Remove the keyboard screws. With the bezel removed, you will find three or four screws at the top of the keyboard. Using your small Philips head screw driver, remove these screws and place them in a safe spot where you will not lose them.
3.Remove the keyboard. With the screws removed, gently lift the keyboard from top to bottom. You will notice a ribbon of wires connected from the keyboard to the laptop. Lean the keyboard forward so that you can access the ribbon wire connection.
4.Remove the ribbon wire. Take your standard screw driver and gently push up the bracket locks on both sides of the ribbon wire socket. These bracket locks slide up slightly as you push to release the wire.
5.Plug in the replacement keyboard. Just as you removed the old keyboard, you will now push the ribbon wire from you replacement into the ribbon socket. With the small screw driver, push the brackets back into place to secure the ribbon.
6.Screw the replacement keyboard back into place. Using one screw, attach the keyboard. With the keyboard held into place by the single screw, start the computer and test the replacement keyboard. Once tested, replace the remaining screws.
7.Insert the bezel above the keyboard. With the keyboard now secured by all of the screws, place the bezel back over its opening and snap it back into place. Start at one end and work your way across.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.com

I cracked my screen on a hp G62-140US notebook. It has no screws so how do i change the screen out? I am out of work and can not afford to take it in for repair. Thank You so much.


The LCD screen is secured to the notebook hinges. To access the LCD screen you need to remove the bezel around the edge of the screen. There are screws hidden behind plastic screw covers. The Bezel may also be secured by retaining clicp and double sided tape.

How do i remove my bezel from my 6920 acer aspire i have found 6 screws is there another 1 under the acer logo?


Actually there is more than that. There are 9 screws you have to remove. You have to remove the plastic strip under the LCD Bezel, also.

1)Four at the top. One in each corner, two in the middle. (On each side of that stretched out V shape)

2)One in each corner of the LCD Bezel at the bottom.

3) Three along the strip at the bottom.

One in the middle.
One in each corner, right next to the hinge on the inside.

The three screws from that plastic strip at the bottom, also go through the LCD Bezel.

I need to replace keyboard from acer 4330. any tips ???? Thanks


Hi there.
Remove the laptop battery and the AC power supply, open the lid as far back as you can take it.
Get a small flat headed screwdriver, now, you have to take off the keyboard bezel, this is the strip of plastic above the keyboard with the power button on it, the best way to remove it is to start by the on/off button by gently prying the bezel up from the lid hinge, once you have one side out gently pull it up using your fingers, it will unclip and lift away.
Next you have to remove 2 screws from the top of the keyboard, these should be visible to you, once the screws are out carefully lift the keyboard up, you will see a ribbon cable that is connected to the motherboard, gently pull the tab up on the connector that the ribbon cable sits in and it should release it and you can now remove the keyboard and replace it.
To re-assemble just follow my direction in reverse.
Please post back with the results and for any additional advice if needed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

I need to frequently clean the inside of my Acer 5610-4534 laptop...I have never disassembled one before; can you help me to get it open?

Insert a small flathead screwdriver under the keyboard bezel and carefully lift it up. Continue releasing plastic latches and removing the keyboard bezel with your fingers


65c2000.jpg
Be careful, on some models the bezel might be connected to the motherboard as it shown on the picture above. If you accidentally pulled the cable, connect it back. It is not necessary to disconnect the keyboard bezel from the motherboard in order to remove and replace the keyboard, just put it aside so you can access the keyboard screws.

8d145ef.jpg
Remove three (or more) screws from the top of the keyboard. Carefully lift up the keyboard from the laptop case

2e7bf96.jpg
The keyboard connects to the motherboard via a flat ribbon cable. Before you pull the cable from the connector, you’ll have to unlock the connector.

The image above illustrates how to unlock the keyboard connector. Carefully move the connector lock 2-3 millimeters up and after that pull the keyboard cable. To install the keyboard, follow the above mentioned steps in the reverse order.

How to change the LCD


Leo -

Replacement LCDs are available for just about every make and model of laptop on Ebay, generally for a reasonable price.

However, installing a new LCD in a laptop can be a difficult operation; I highly recommend having the installation done in a repair shop.

If you do decide to try installing a new LCD yourself, here are the basics:

There are several screws you need to remove. On the bottom of the computer are generally between two and six screws that hold the power/hinge bezel in place, as well as the keyboard. Remove these screws and CAREFULLY pull up the bezel. The keyboard may also have screws under that bezel, remove those before lifting the keyboard (usually doesn't have to be completely disconnected, just shifted aside, but don't stress the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard to the motherboard too much).

With the bezel and keyboard out of the way, you should see a cable that connects the motherboard to the LCD through one of the LCD hinges. Disconnect that cable.

The plastics covering the LCD should have a handful of rubber or plastic 'plugs', between four and ten of 'em, with small screws located underneath each. Remove these screws, then very gently use a small flathead screwdriver to pry the LCD plastics apart at the seams along the side.

Once the front plastics are removed from the LCD, disconnect the long, slim PCB that rests beneath the actual screen. Remove the screws that hold the screen to the mounting brackets along its sides, and the LCD should be loose. Carefully lift it from the rear plastic cover, and you'll see a ribbon cable connected to the display. Release the clips that hold the ribbon cable in place on the screen, and you're ready to put in the new LCD!

I know its long and circuitous, but repeat the steps above in reverse to install the new screen.

Hope this helps!

There is a strip of plastic above the keyboard you have to pull off to get at the screws for the keyboard.

I would remove any screws under the laptop that go into the strip above the keyboard and any screws that are under the keyboard.

Then carefully pry the strip above the keyboard up with your hands or use a small flathead screwdriver along the edge.

Hope this helps!
